Nonnie was the most perfect human being ever! She’ll never be alone ever again and is finally at peace in so many ways. I love you Nonnie! Thank you for being my grandma, my human diary, and most of all my bestfriend!

Blessed to meet Mary in the last year or so at Shabbat service. She was a pretty lady and had a sweet smile. She was blessed to have Kandi as her caregiver.
My sincere sympathy for all the family.
